HOW AM I GONNA TELL THE FUHRER WE DON'T EVEN HAVE A TANK LIKE THE T-34. ITS ROUGH, CHEAP TO BUILD, RELIABLE AND EASY TO MAINTAIN, ITS POWERED BY A DIESEL ENGINE, HAS SLOPPED ARMOR WHY DIDN'T WE THINK OF THAT. AND THOSE SNEAKY RUSSKIES EVEN PUT THE DRIVERS CONTROLS ON THE LEFT! PRISONER NUMBER FIVE: ALBERT SPEER: MINISTER OF ARMAMENTS JOINED THE NAZI PARTY IN 1931. AFTER THE WAR WAS SENT TO SPANDAU PRISON 20 YEAR SENTENCE. DID YOU KNOW, EVERY MONTH THE PRISONERS WERE GUARDED BY ONE OF THE FOUR POWERS, US, USSR, FRANCE AND BRITIAN. RELEASED IN 1966 DIED 1981 LONDON, ENGLAND.

I wonder if this photo might have been June 1942 rather than 1943. This particular T-34 was a very early model, the 1940, and by June 1943 the Panther was about to debut. Not a lot of reason to go slumming in an obsolescent T-34 model by that time, unless it was just a publicity shot as well it could have been.
